states like nevada and wisconsin and iowa. that's the way that he holds on even if romney somehow runs the table in florida, virginia, and ohio. if he can hold those other states, he can still win. >> chuck, you go along with that? >> i do. >> we need virginia and florida? >> i have been trying -- the sunday romney schedule had been in the dark. they had set it up. here is the sunday schedule. we just got it. iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. now -- >> pennsylvania, they got a chance there? yes. is it likely? >> feels like they're looking for more paths and more opportunities. they basically failed to expand the map early. they're hoping maybe hope upon hope that they steal a state late, that somehow they could scramble the whole thing up with pennsylvania. the fact is they're close in pennsylvania but it's lucy and the football close. >> there's a lot of work to be done by the democrats in southeastern pennsylvania. >> they do have work to do in western pennsylvania. there's a whole bunch of democratic -- your friend mark critz is in big trouble. >> i don't want to start a fight
and the election, while sprinkling in the battleground states. now let me show you this, where mitt romney is going, two stops in ohio over the next four days. but he also adds two stops in new hampshire, florida, virginia, ohio, if he swept all three, he would be four short, he needs a small state new hampshire seems to be the best state, here is why, the numbers, iowa, the small state, sticking with obama, he is up by six in the latest poll, wisconsin, paul ryan's home state, as part of the obama firewall, romney would like to get it, still trails by three points look at new hampshire, while the president leads by two, new hampshire looks like the state that will go romney, romney's economic numbers are better than the president, and the president's job approval rating is less than better there. but i'll show you the crucial state ends up sitting here as ohio, if you look at these numbers here. in the road to 270, the missing ingredient is ohio, brian. >> all right, as we'll be discussing, something tells me, tuesday night, chuck todd at the board, as we continue along the way. why visitors to ne

-49 between the two candidates, governor mitt romney and the president. this state is considered to be a must win for the republican nominee who has visited this state more than any of the others. hurricane sandy is threatening to hit millions of americans over the next several days but the country could be feeling the effects much longer than that. we are only nine days from the presidential election. that storm is going to affect where the candidates go, what they talk about and who will be able to make it out for the early voting. molly henneberg has the details from washington. >> some are calling hurricane sandy the october surprise in this year's election. candidates are trying to work around this massive storm while still keeping up the campaign pace in key battleground states. president obama has cancelled a stop in virginia on monday and colorado event on tuesday. he will leave tonight, though, for an event in florida and return to washington to monitor the storm. the white house says the president is getting regular updates on sandy and one democratic strategist says all presidents
romney is now neck- and-neck with barack obama in many of the crucial swing states. these romney supporters, with little more than a week ago, are beginning to claim victory. in contrast, mr. obama in washington yesterday was burdened with double trouble, faced with a desperately tight election race, but now some campaign plans disrupted by the need to leave the nature -- -- lead the nation through the weather emergency. at least it is a chance to look and sound presidential. with just a week ago and the race in a dead heat, no campaign stunt is too much trouble, even for the wives of the candidates. michelle obama on a tv comedy show literally getting the votes out early, to give the democrats the advantage. and ann romney appealing to the undecided women voters that republicans want to win over. no one really knows what tactics will make a difference. indeed ate swing states that will decide this election, that is. -- in the 8 swing states that will decide the election. >> this is bbc world news. hurricane sandy is strengthening as it approaches the east coast of the united st

think romney wins your state? >> yes i will go on record, it will be close, very, very close. as i said before we had more voter contacts. there is more enthusiasm there. a republican truly doesn't get elected because if there are not a lot of independent thinking democrats and independents. governor romney's message is so strong it will rule the day in pennsylvania. bill: 30 seconds left, the suburbs of philadelphia, does counties surround philadelphia are critical to winning the entire state and you're saying those counties will go republican this year? >> there is lot of mothers and fathers sent their sons and daughters to college and grad school in those counties and a lot of kids in philadelphia as well and they can't find jobs. 50% are still looking for work and they know the past four years is not a road map to a better future. they're prepared for new leadership. i think they will go with governor romney. bill: tom ridge, thank you, mr. secretary. >> thank you. bill: martha. martha: there is much more on the aftermath of hurricane sandy but also as you just been hearing tom ridg

of does romney win the popular vote because the president underperformance in some of his stronger states while the president could still win the electoral college. there's lots of scenarios here but in essence the race has been frozen and here we go, it's going to get kicked back up as soon as the president gets out of his role as president only, dealing with disaster relief. >> one more word about chris christie he runs in two years and for his constituency, being able to play with the president of the united states and be bipartisan, is not a bad calling card. it's pretty essential. >> but right. it's essential because he needs the federal government. he talked about yes, they need to cut their own state budget but they need federal money for this cleanup. there's only one entity that can provide that, that's the federal government, the president. not exactly in keeping with the small government message. >> and what could be a better and bigger symbol than the picture we see right now -- >> of incumbency. >> the blue and white jet is iconic, it is what has helped most incumbents in the
. very, very close. but you look at those battleground states and there has not been a poll out of ohio in months that has shown mitt romney ahead. >> yeah. >> and so that's where -- that's why these guys are spending so much time in ohio, wisconsin, and iowa. that's where this election will be decided. gwen: john: >> mitt romney will not be president unless he outperforms the polls if the polls are not capturing the intensity behind mitt romney's superintendent porers or in some way they're exaggerating president obama's support -- gwen: where is the intensity right now? is it with the republicans or the democrats? >> we have it equal. in our polls they're equally inspired. that's exactly right. >> republicans think they have an advantage. >> it's dispor portion -- disproportion nat with white voters. african-americans are also pretty energized but latinos which the president is dominating are not. young voters are not. both of those are underperforming in terms of interest in the election and motivation. that's where the president's challenge is. he's got to make sure that he could ha
tries spin the poll numbers in romney's favor. john nichols has the story from the badger state. listen to my radio show on sirius xm radio channel 127 monday through friday, noon to 3:00 p.m. and follow me on twitter @edshow and like "the ed show" on facebook. >>> welcome back. when faced with disasters like hurricane sandy, americans, you know, we always find a way to lend a hand. we're used to taking a shirt off our back for our next door neighbor, aren't we? that's just the spirit of america. that's who we are. tonight we here at nbc universal tried to do our part with the hurricane sandy coming together telethon. the hour long special was hosted by "today" show's matt lauer. and included music from new jersey natives bruce springsteen, bon jovi, long island's billy joel, and staten island-born christina aguilera. coming together to benefit the american red cross and the relief efforts for victims of the storm. nothing controversial about that whatsoever, correct? >> why the timing? why is that today? half the state of new jersey doesn't have power and can't even watch the concert.
that romney plateaued too low. and that they're still competitive in so many of the battleground states, either ahead or tied that there's just not enough room for romney to come back. as you well know, both sides are arguing their case for why they have certain advantages going into election day. what we know is how close it is. and so there's much that we can't know or really say at this point. >> and there's word even from some democrats in michigan that i know the obama campaign says michigan is not in play but some democrats on the ground in michigan telling us, telling me, that it is closep. a lot closer than their xlfrts zo comfort zone and pennsylvania is not perhaps in play but closer than they expected to be. the senate candidate not doing as well as expected given his registration advantage. really risks for the casey campaign with -- up against ap candidate who is from the west which is normally a casey stronghold. so there are a number of places that are a lot closer than the comfort zone for the obama team, despite their very scientifically based huge and we see now the pr
lead but even if romney runs the table and gets every state that currently has it as a dead heat, florida, virginia, iowa, new hampshire, as long as president obama still holds on to ohio, nevada and wisconsin no matter what the national pop lay vote, the president gets 271 and he wins. >> eliot: if i hear you properly what is going on here, even though the national polls are saying this thing is closing up, mitt romney is making this thing an interesting horse race to watch, it isn't good enough in this race, 270 is the magical number. after all the talk of momentum for mitt romney, that number four seems to be constant. with early voting there, is it going to be possible for mitt romney to get those critical electelectoral votes. >> no president has ever within the presidency without winning ohio and mitt romney doesn't see a path of doing it without the buckeye state. they'll be essentially living in ohio that either romney or ryan will be in the buckeye state until election day. the problem that they have is that where the message nationally might be on all sorts of different
. >> mitt romney unleashes a perfect storm of lies trying to fool buckeye state voters. former ohio governor ted strickland and congressman tim ryan are here with the truth. >> when you take a look at colin powell, i don't have you to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he has a slightly different reason for supporting president obama. >> going after colin powell. tonight colin powell's former chief of staff lawrence wilkerson on sununu's charge. >>> and michael eric dyson on racism as a campaign tactic in the year 2012. >>> plus righties are freaking out, calling the obama campaign satanic over this ad. >> super uncool to be out and about did you vote, no, i wasn't ready. >> and lives hang in the balance if obama care gets repealed. pearl jam guitarist mike mccready is standing up for people with preexisting conditions and he joins "the ed show" tonight. good to have you with us, folks. thanks for watching. all eyes are on ohio in the final weeks of the 2012 election. the romney campaign hit a sour note last night at a rally in the buckeye state. ♪ ♪ and crow
.o.p. pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. romney's home state. in the last few days, there have been a handful of polls that the gap has narrowed and romney made ground and come within the margin of error in those states and now he has begun to advertise. these are states the obama campaign is very very confident about. david action sell rod said he would shave his mustache off if he lost any of them. that's a staches has had for 40 years. tough hurdle for mr. romney to clear in ohio. in the last 48 hours or so there have been seven polls. all of them have suggested that mr. obama is up within the margin of error by a couple of points on mitt romney. most scenarios, romney can't win without winning here in florida as well as without ohio. so, one of the schools of thought is that the romney camp is trying to hedge against a possible defeat in ohio by expanding the battlefield or trying to into those three blue states. the obama campaign isn't buying it. as we head into the final six days it's very clear it's going to go right down to the wire with anybody's guess in some of the battleground st

that is being fought over. it's along the massachusetts border. massachusetts is the stated that governor romney led. so it is a very interesting area. many of the people from nashua work in massachusetts. host: who are the voters in this area? guest: new hampshire has traditionally libertarian streak. our motto is live free or die. it is a tossup location. the voters, i think they are voting for the person they think is going to lead this country the next four years. some people will say new hampshire has a summer home of governor romney and the state next door, massachusetts, where he was governor. i think that is less of a factor. i think the people of new hampshire can see beyond that and are voting for the person they think is best for the 50 states. host: tell us about the history of new hampshire being a swing state. guest: traditionally, new hampshire was very solidly republican for many years. recently, i think it is sort of the clinton 1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point vict

a lot. >>neil: you think romney can afford to lose your state? >>guest: i wouldn't suggest that. i don't think you want to lose ohio. if you lose ohio it puts into play a lot of other states that romney folks hope they win, like a state like virginia, i don't think you want to be in a position of where you can say we can afford to lose he he but we will pick it up somewhere else. >>neil: what did you think of governor christie with the president in new jersey yesterday saying he was doing, help is help and he will take it. there have been a lot of people in the republican party saying it did not look good and the timing of it so close to the election next week almost represented a slap to mitt romney. what do you say? >>guest: i say when you go of a state and your state has been absolutely decimated and devastated and somebody comes in to help you, i likely to give them a big hug and thank them. i told somebody earlier today about this, if you have a loved one that is in a operating room and you don't know how it will go and weapon the doctor walks out and says, the patient is fine, pa
numbers and state numbers. according to the national numbers, dead heat or romney slightly ahead, but the state by state breakdowns are showing that obama has the edge. stuart: i don't know how you can account for that. how can you have one candidate in the lead nationally, but behind in the key states like ohio? i don't know how that could work out, quite frankly, i don't get it. >> you're right, it can't work and that's why basically people are picking and choosing, are they going with the national or the state numbers. there's a the lot of reasons why it could be. for one thing the national pollsters have been around for a while, you know, they've got their methodology and the state polling is done by different methodologist, we'll find out november 6th who is right, but looks to me, karl rove does make a good point. when you've got ohio saying that we're going to have democrats the same turnout in 2008 when people were so excited about their candidate and so much less excited about him now. and there's no question there's a problem there. and that's the thing, every, every po
on the presidential cam pains. particularly in some key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, coul

romney in critical battle ground states. less than 60 hours to go to election day. the drama is building and we're on the trail with live reports and new polls to share. good day, everyone. welcome to weekends with alex witt and welcome to live coverage from democracy plaza. we will be here in 30 rockefeller center in new york city until election day and all through the results night tuesday. we'll have more on that in just a moment. first let's get to what's happening right now. three days until the election. new today president obama looking to close the deal in the crucial battle ground state of ohio. this is from mentor, ohio where the president is just about to speak. we're watching that very closely. before heading to today's event, though, the president visited fema headquarters to get a response to the efforts of aftermath of hurricane sandy. he is sending -- >> we don't have any patience for bureaucracy. we don't have any patience for red tape. and we want to make sure that we are figuring out a way to get to yes as opposed to no when it comes to these problems. >> meanwhile, mi
